Propter Christum: (on account of Christ): We all use a variety of Latin phrases. My favorite Latin phrase is propter Christum. It means, “on account of Christ.” Everything that we receive from God we receive “on account of Christ.” All spiritual blessing of life and salvation are found in Christ Jesus. We receive nothing from God outside of Christ. The problem is, for many, Christianity becomes “Jesus plus” and what is added is usually something of our own doing – a spirituality of our own making.
First Lesson: Colossians 2:2-10
